NSF-NRT Program at Kansas State University

Kansas State University are recruiting Sociology M.S. and Ph.D. students for a new interdisciplinary graduate program. 

Briefly, the program is funded by a National Research Traineeship (NRT) Award from the National Science Foundation. The theme is “Rural Resource Resiliency.”  The program is designed to prepare future leaders in industry, academia, government, and policy settings to help shape more sustainable communities.  The program focuses especially on the challenges associated with food, energy, and water systems.

Kansas State can offer a generous stipend ($34,000 per year; 1-year at the Master’s level, 2-years at the PhD level), and full tuition (up to 18 credit hours per year).  Following this funding, students in the program will be very competitive for GTA and GRA opportunities to complete their studies. NSF does require US Citizenship, green card, or permanent residency to participate with NRT-funding.  Also, Kansas State can waive the application fee to the KSU Graduate School.
